This particular species of grouper is considered endangered today and protected in the United States and Caribbean. Courtesy IFA / IFA.org. Groupers is a new movie in the dark revenge comedy drama hybrid genre.
The plot has a deliciously gay twist and the first half of the movie just made me smile and laugh. Most good comedies (especially when you incorporate horror or slasher elements) need to keep a tight runtime.
The movie opens with Nicole Dam bro’s character, Meg, kidnapping two young men. However, while Pitchfork is a classic slasher movie, Groupers is more of a psychological terror deal.
And Meg (Nicole Dam bro) has a pretty excellent way of teaching them this important lesson. Instead, the important and funny focus of Groupers was watered down in all the wrong ways.
The main plot of teaching some homophobic brats a lesson is awesome and funny. The scenes with just Nicole Dam bro (Meg, the kidnapper) and the two “victims”, Brad and Dylan, were wonderful.
For the record, this does also mean I enjoyed the performances of Peter Mayer-Klepchick as Brad and Cameron Puckett as Dylan. Groupers is the feature film debut for Anderson Conan as both a director and writer.
However, this isn’t the first time making movies for Anderson Conan since he has made quite a lot of short films since beginning in 2000. If you enjoy dark comedies with some brutal plot points, then make sure you check out Groupers.
Absurdity and insanity ensue as we learn that a seductive grad student is behind thekidnaping and plans to perform a psychological and somewhat sadistic experiment on them. A string of outlandish characters, including a one-eyed street thug and a philosophical squatter get caught upon this odd tale of revenge while bringing their own, ambiguous motives (and opinions) to the party as they pontificate whether homosexuality is a choice.
